Manhattan Cocktail

  • SERVINGS: Makes 8 Drinks

Employees Only, New York City

This Manhattan reflects the recipe in America's first cocktail book, 1862's The Bon Vivant's Companion, by Jerry Thomas. It has a higher ratio of sweet vermouth to rye than the modern Manhattan.

  1. Ice
  2. 11 ounces sweet vermouth
  3. 11 ounces rye whiskey
  4. 2 1/2 ounces Grand Marnier
  5. 16 dashes of Angostura bitters
  6. 8 orange or lemon twists
  1. Fill a pitcher two-thirds full with ice. Add the vermouth, rye, Grand Marnier and bitters and stir for 30 seconds to chill. Strain into 8 chilled martini glasses; top each with a twist.
